Volume number refers original book number
Part number refers to PDF file part as posted on B&MRRHS site
Page numbers refer to pages in PDF file(s) (L/R = Left or Right side of that PDF page)
NOTE: once cars get renumbered into "company service" (zero + number, or W/M/S numbers), the following actions are my "best guess" as to what happened to the car (due to gaps in records, and the re-use of numbers)

Models

Many models of PS-1s have been produced. Perhaps the best (HO) ones are the Kadee and Intermountain, both of which have produced B&M decorated cars, although I don't have details right now. Be careful (particularly) with the door sizes/types and the 6 dimples at the peak of the ends. (note the 74000 series did NOT have them!)
As Kadee releases the B&M cars in small batches, I am not going to list them all here

Con-Cor also has a 40' (I think) PS-1 model (look on their web site under "HO - kits") of unknown accuracy for the B&M (none are decorated for the B&M). Make sure you look at the "regular" door ones, not the "insulated - plug door" ones. Still available as of Dec-2020

Per B&MRRHS Modelers Notes #24 (Jan, 1992) Weaver had an O scale PS-1 available. Unknown accuracy for the B&M, unknown if any were painted for the B&M

Per B&MRRHS Modelers Notes #38 (Jul, 1995) the McKean PS-1 kit might be better for these as it is closer to the "pre-1950 changes" design (no 6 "dimples" in the end, no crossbearer at center of door, side sill tabs different, 2 roof end panels "flat")

Note Walthers did a HO scale 40' PS-1 "early" design, which has correct ends, and probably most other details, except it has a 6' Superior door (not 7' as the B&M had).
Undec kit Part #910-2350, still visible on their web site as of Feb, 2021 (but listed "out of stock")

Also MTH had a PS-1, now being produced by Scaletrains (although none that I know of painted for the B&M)
